Frequently asked questions
Both cast aluminum and forged aluminum wheel spacers have their advantages and disadvantages.
Cast aluminum wheel spacers are more affordable than forged ones. They are also easier to produce and manufacture. However, they are generally weaker and less durable than forged aluminum spacers.
Forged aluminum wheel spacers are more expensive than cast ones, but they offer superior strength and durability. They are also more resistant to corrosion and wear and tear.
Ultimately, the decision between cast and forged aluminum wheel spacers will depend on your budget.
Cast aluminum and forged aluminum are two different processes used in the manufacturing of aluminum products. Cast aluminum is made by pouring molten aluminum into a mold and allowing it to solidify. This process is less expensive than forging, and it allows for more complex shapes and designs.
Forged aluminum, on the other hand, is made by heating a block of aluminum and then shaping it with a hammer or press. This process produces a stronger and more durable product than cast aluminum, but it is also more expensive.
Which one is better depends on the specific application and the desired properties of the product. Cast aluminum may be suitable for some applications where weight and cost are the primary factors, while forged aluminum may be preferred for applications where strength and durability are essential.
The choice between 10.9 and 12.9 grade wheel studs depends on the specific application and requirements. Both grades are high-strength and commonly used in automotive and mechanical applications, but 12.9 grade is stronger than 10.9 grade.
If you are looking for maximum strength and durability, then 12.9 grade wheel studs would be the better choice. They can withstand higher levels of stress and are less likely to fail under extreme conditions. However, if the application doesn't require the maximum strength, 10.9 grade wheel studs may be sufficient and could be a more cost-effective option.
All Tanked wheel spacers use 12.9 grade wheel studs
Wheel spacers are devices that are installed between a vehicle's wheel hub and the wheel itself, effectively pushing the wheel away from the hub. The primary function of wheel spacers is to widen the vehicle's track, which is the distance between the left and right wheels.
By moving the wheels outward, wheel spacers can improve a vehicle's handling by increasing its stability and grip, particularly during high-speed cornering. The increased track width can also help fill out the wheel wells for a more aggressive look, particularly if the vehicle has a lowered suspension or aftermarket wheels with a lower offset.
In addition, wheel spacers can also provide clearance for larger brake systems or suspension components that might otherwise interfere with the wheel.
